    Mirror Lake single track

    Starting this week, new ground has been broken on the first segment of singletrack trail going in between Mirror lake and Edmond lake in the Chugiak/Peters Creek/Eklutna area. Plan by the Chugach Mountain Bike Riders (CMBR) is to construct approx 7 miles of new MTB singletrack this fall throughout a Municipality of Anchorage parkland parcel (accessible from mirror lake park) which have an existing (and seldom used) set of vintage XC-ski trails.
    CMBR received approval and a $$ grant to help kick-off the trail construction and the trail contractor (ptarmigan ptrails) is doing a great job of design and rough-in of the singletrack with mini-excavator and mini-dozer power equipment. Final hand-equipment brushing, raking/grading, and compaction of the trails is via a community volunteer effort. Around 30-40 local volunteers showed up this past Wednesday for the fist weekly work party and we got nearly 1 mile of fantastic new singletrack put in thus far.
    Plan is to keep weekly work parties going throughout this fall (Wednesdays at 6:30) to follow-up behind the contractor progress. Feel welcome to show up and help contribute to creating a new singletrack system for the area! (tools provided)

    CMBR had another weekly work session last Wednesday and made more good progress on the Mirror lake trails. Good turnout of volunteers and fun times afterwards with pizza and liquid refreshments provided. The terrain, dirt, rocks and natural features of the area are a great canvass for new singletrack. The next volunteer work session continues Wednesday 8/31 at 6:31 at Mirror Lake if anyone wants to come help and check out the progress.
